New Products (Issue 68)
New IP67 PROFINET switches, IP67 PROFINET I/O, and IP67 PROFIBUS I/O; plus PROFIBUS slave modules, multi-protocol Ethernet I/O, and media converters round out this month’s New Products section. Click the headings for additional details.
Murrelektronik’s new TREE67 unmanaged switches – equipped with four or eight M12 ports – are suitable for applications in harsh industrial environments. They make it possible to cost-effectively implement decentralized machine concepts in star topologies.
Belden presents new ruggedized LioN-R modules for PROFIBUS from its Lumberg Automation™ product range. The fully enclosed metal housing can withstand mechanical stress as well as welding sparks and filings, aggressive coolants and lubricants.
Molex announces the release of the latest SST Profibus communication modules. They use a custom Add On Profile, easing integration into the controller. The modules also support: repeater, data swap, auto-run, legacy ID, error codes, LEDs, and scrolling LCD display.
TURCK is expanding its line of in-cabinet, block I/O stations with the addition of the FEN20 I/O stations for Industrial Ethernet. This first release in a family of FEN20 I/O stations is available with 16 configurable I/O, power isolation between I/O zones, and an embedded Ethernet switch to support a variety of application topologies.
Brad HarshIO compact Ethernet modules offer a smooth and easy transition to PROFINET connectivity for machine builders currently using PROFIBUS. Narrow 30mm housings are well suited to compact machines where space is limited.
From Phoenix Contact: the FL MC 2000E SM40 LC Ethernet media converter completes the class of optical converters for use in energy technology. Ethernet pass through mode supports very short delay times of just 700 ns, also making the media converters ideal for use in time-critical applications such as PROFINET.
